The idea of the SciComm Trainers Network originated from a series of workshops that were held in late 2017-early 2018 that you can read about here. The Network was initially lead by Amanda Stanley, Ph.D. (Executive Director, COMPASS) and Laura Lindenfeld, Ph.D. (Executive Director, Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science). Under their leadership, convenings of the Network were held in 2018 and 2019 (which you can read about here and here).
